Deutsch: Dies ist die deutschsprachige Diagrammversion, andere sind unten angegeben.

Das Diagramm zeigt die wahrscheinlichen Wege, die von den Hunnen bei ihrer Invasion Galliens 451 benutzt wurden, und die Schicksale der Städte auf ihrem Weg. Die verschiedenen Quellen ergeben widersprüchliche Information darüber, ob Städte geplündert wurden, insbesondere Trier.

Es wird auch gesagt, daß einige Städte südöstlich von Troyes einschließlich Auxerre, Besancon und Langres geplündert wurden.

  • Various other sources including the Catholic Encyclopedia articles on the various cities.

Various sources give conflicting information on whether some cities were sacked, in particular Trier. Man says "no", while Ferrill says "yes". Most other sources agree with Ferrill. There are also several cities southeast of Troyes which were said to have been sacked, including Auxerre, Besancon, and Langres.

In order to be as understandable as possible to the average reader, I have used the modern-day names of the towns, rather than the names used in 451 CE.
